hasta: 30-10-2019
lugar: Barcelona, España.

The VI International Conference on Particle-Based Methods (PARTICLES 2019)
will be organised on 28-30 October 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. The five
previous conferences on this series were held in Barcelona on 25-27
November 2009 and 26-28 October 2011, in Stuttgart on 18-20 September 2013,
in Barcelona on 28-30 September 2015 and in Hannover, Germany, on 26-28
September 2017.

PARTICLES 2019 will address both the fundamental basis and the
applicability of state-of-the-art particle-based computational methods that
can be effectively used for solving a variety of problems in engineering
and applied sciences.

The denotation "Particle-Based Methods" basically stands for two different
computational models in solid and fluid mechanics.

On the one hand, it represents discretization concepts in which the
response of a continuum is projected onto “particles” carrying the
mechanical deformation during deformations. Typical representatives are
Meshless Methods, Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) methods, Moving
Particle Simulation (MPS) methods, the Particle Finite Element Method
(PFEM), the Material Point Method (MPM) and the Lattice-Boltzmann-Method
(LBM), among others.

On the other hand, the notion expresses the computational representation of
physical particles existing on different scales. Classical versions are
Molecular Dynamics (MD) or the Discrete (Distinct) Element Method (DEM).
Here either the particles exist a priori like in granular matters or they
evolve during the loading process. In some cases the two models of
discretization and physical particles are interconnected.

PARTICLES 2019 will aim to cover both concepts of particle-based
techniques, because of their strong interrelation both in the computation
and application points of view.
